Interest Rates Fall and Rise With News Out of China

Interest Rates Fall and Rise With News Out of China

August 2015

Interest rates had another rollercoaster week last week with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) Market trading all over the board. On Tuesday, the MBS market closed up + 53 bps with news out of China that they were going to stop manipulating and devaluing their currency. This caused investors to flock to the safety of the bond market – pushing interest rate pricing to multi month lows. Since then, China pulled back on this announcement moving all interest rate gains back. The MBS market closed 4 of the 5 days down, ending the week closing down -33 bps.

30 year fixed rates are now available at 3.875% paying 1 point (4.08% APR), and 4.125% paying 0 points (4.16% APR). 15 year fixed rates are now available at 3.125% paying .86 points (3.29% APR), and 3.375% paying 0 points (3.39% APR). **Priced with 740+ credit score, rate and term refinance at 75% LTV**

On Monday – the NY Empire State Manufacturing Index came in lower than analyst predictions helping improve interest rates. On Wednesday the FED minutes will be released which should give traders some hint on if the FED may increase the Federal Funds rate at their next meeting on September 17th.
